They were supposed to be the 3rd party answer to the discontinued Cinema displays (i.e. combining a Display with USB hub, webcam + microphone + speakers). However for they have been causing regular issues especially with mac laptops:
- The screen is known to reliably crash the mac (Fortunately recent macOS updates appear to be limiting the scenarios when this occurs.)
- The screen may or may not wake from sleep, or force the system to crash/reboot when in sleep.
- If it does wake, it'll often wake "late", meaning the desktop/windows are flying back and forth across displays
- After waking, the screen may exhibit unusual flickering lines (resleeping/waking the display does seems to resolve these however)
For the cost of the screen and the fact that it's sold 1st party from Apple (with no true alternatives from Apple) is a disgrace to the brand, one of the strongest motivators I have to buy through Apple is knowing that the hardware isn't going to crash my system or generally misbehave. Additionally because it's 3rd party: all attempts at resolving the issues lead no where, if you don't refund the screen within your 2 week grace period, you're stuck with a very expensive lemon.
My main issue with the display is ghosting. Overall, I don't notice it too much, I paid a pretty good price for the monitor ($950 in the early incentives), and it still does look great. I have an older 20" cinema display next to it and the difference is huge. No real regrets.
It’s for clipboard managers, and there are quite few of them in the App Store.

Here's the Electrolux Trilobite from 1996:
